To the Editor of The Baptist.

Sir:—May I be permitted to reply to the article by "Optic," which appeared in the Jan. 1st issue of The Baptist, entitled "An Exposure of Christian Science."

It is stated that "the distinctive feature of Christian Science is its quiet but resolute opposition to the Christian faith." Such a statement quite misrepresents Christian Science. It is not a philosophy secretly at work undermining the fabric of the Christian faith, such as Mr. Moulton would have his readers imagine. The world is witnessing the phenomenal progress of the teaching known as Christian Science, through which the sick are being healed, the sinner reformed, and the sorrowful comforted. The teaching by which these results are being attained may not be "orthodox," yet sin and disease are being overcome, and if Mr. Moulton stones Christian Science for the works it is doing for suffering humanity, even members of the Christian faith will undoubtedly regret his attitude.
